Just wondering, who here likes to ink things traditionally? :/ Despite all the new programs out there designed to help us ink, I still find that I ink better when I have a pen in my hand =3= I've tried programs like SAI and MS EX4 for inking but I was wondering what other programs are there?

Me too, I love traditional inking specially for lineart. Since I think pen make my style not really change than when I vector the lineart ^^
Btw, have you heard about MyPaint? It's good to make lineart and paint too also it had many variation of brush in it ^^

I actually have recently started using a g pen. I actually love it! The linework becomes really smooth and all my charas lines have more personality!

Depends what I am doing. If it's my comic then penning by hand always looks better. If it's a digital drawing the I pen digitally.

I love doing things by hand, I find it easier to ink by hand rather than on a computer. The pen actually obey me. Although I won't be able to re-do a line it's much more fun.

I like traditional but digital is clean and more easy to have and use (don't buy the material) but eventually soft.
For digital if you miss, you erase or back to modify your error =3

Because I do such a lousy ink job whenever I draw traditionally, I usually just ink stuff digitally... Much easier for me.

digital inking is faster and cleaner, for colored manga particularly. BUT the traditional one can creative some random effects~~

Cancel

Traditional looks more natural if you ask me, but I don't have much practice with it
digital is less messy ~

*goes to practice traditional*

Traditional definitly !
the feel of real a4 paper is making the worl of manga even more great the water paint , the copics and the pencil are making the colors even more amazing having you hoping you would one day be able to look at the original copies and admire the fine work of awesome artists , the feel of the pennibs scraching on the paper the smell of china ink while it dries on your manuscript, the ifferent sorts of tones you apply on your paper , and when you are done, the awesome feeling of having created an unbelievably beautiful piece of art that shall be seen around the world .... the whole process of traditional works has an unbearable feel of beauty igniting from it *O*
